I was meant to keep you posted on how my BV treatment went! As quick as the thought to email you would enter my head, it would leave again…
I’ll try make this brief anyway. I didn’t manage the first recommended treatment more than 2 days, as it was just so messy and I as I was staying with my parents it was a bit of a disaster!
Since we last spoke, I went to see a specialist and, surprise surprise, it was a total waste of time and A LOT of money. In a nutshell she told me BV was really no big deal, it’s just an imbalance, nothing to worry about. Naturally she was very dubious about the approach I had been taking, and insisted there is no such thing as a biofilm buster. She was completely against PCR testing.
She gave me Relactagel to use for 1 week which is basically a more expensive version of Balance Activ. Don’t get me wrong, she was a nice lady and she listened to me, but we disagreed on many things. I found no real results from the Relactagel at this stage….
I ordered some very reasonably priced products that you recommended online (from Germany and France). I did a week of the vaginal treatment as recommended, with a month of oral biofilm busters the month before that (for a full month). I then followed up with one week of Physioflor and Balance Activ together, because I figured what the hell, it can’t hurt, and continued with Jarro-Dophilus Women.
I am EXTREMELY excited to tell you that I have since had 2 tests for BV that have turned up negative!!!! I cannot thank you and My Vagina enough, this is the first time since April 2013 that I have been BV free I was beginning to think it would never happen. Hopefully I can keep on top of it from now on, and you have given me the tools for that.
Thank you, thank you, thank you from me and my happy vagina!
Much love and appreciation,
